About Samuel van den Bergh

Samuel van den Bergh (Oss 6 April 1864 - Nice 4 February 1941) was one of the main European margarine and soap manufacturers in the early 20th century.

In 1888 Van den Bergh joined his father Simon van den Bergh's margarine company, of which he became general director in 1909. Although initially in fierce competition with another manufacturer from Oss in the Netherlands, Antonius Johannes Jurgens,who's father Antoon Jurgens had founded in 1870 in Oss the first margarine factory in the world by buying a French patent. Both competitors joined up in 1927 to form the Margarine Unie, which would merge in 1930 with Lever Brothers to form Unilever.
